    A partnership with DUCSTeach and the District Attorney of Philadelphia was born.

    A New Home

    After starting the program back in 2013, the DUCSTeach organization was retired. The program lives on within the College of Computing and Informatics, not by name, but by spirit, through community programs run by the Dean's Ambassadors as well as other staff members. While it's sad to see the program come to a close, it provided a meaningful start to the interest of computers to hundreds of students throughout the years. On behalf of Dan Ziegler and all of the student officers past and present, thank you for your support and to all of the students and partners who made this program possible.
